My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I love to read these adventures set in York as it was back in the day – and as large chunks of it stil are! This one full of lively characters, many by now a little older and wiser than in the first one I read.
What particularly appeals to me are the Author’s Notes after the tale – the searches in our city’s archives where she got the information and inspiration; the way a tale comes together in an author’s mind.
Why not 5 stars this time? Only that I found some of the prose a little more pedestrian than in the 1st tale. Sentences like “Owen was concerned about…” when it could have been put in a more interesting way.
